ESPN: Live Sports & Scores for Negative User Reviews

Fine For Basics But Not Much ElseThe app is fine when it works if you want scores or news. However, over the last month or so the app crashes on me after 5-15 minutes of use. While watching a video or reading an article it will just hard crash and close on its own. I’ve tried reinstalling but the problem persists. Also, the ads are a little excessive. I understand they need to make money on ads, but watching a 30 second add for a minute long video seems excessive. The banner ads are also very intrusive. Finally, the radio features don’t play nicely with the rest of the iOS audio features. Radio feeds won’t pause if you start watching something else, and will play over whatever you switch to. Often times pushing play on headphones won’t restart a paused audio feed, and playing a paused feed requires you to press play, pause it, and press play again for it to start up again. It’s by far the worst part of the app, and I listen to far less ESPN radio shows now because of it..Version: 7.1.0

The video audio could be betterThe app in general is good! But I don’t know who is behind of the idea that put the video news with soundtrack music!! God!! We want to listen the action or narrative no one soundtrack video!!.Version: 6.3

Way to heavy and slowThis app is way to heavy. I have an iPhone 6S and it takes forever to open and crashes often. Super frustrating to use.Version: 5.12.1

I cannot access the articles sports bettingTheres a little circle that is loading but the article never appear.Version: 6.81

So closeThis would instantly become my sole news app for sports if but for a couple missing features, which at the moment prevent me from using this almost entirely. The Scores screen should be renamed Fixtures, and a calendar should be added within it so you can scroll to previous results and upcoming fixtures of interest. A calendar view is already available if you go into the Premier League area. Use case is for example, England played NZ yesterday at cricket. There’s another game in the series to be played on Tuesday - but currently nowhere within the app does it give me any details of that game or tell me it’s happening. If i didn't know of it already, I’d completely miss it. Upcoming games should be a core feature and it doesnt appear anywhere The sport category grouping also needs a clean up, theres too many different choices for each sport and all seems a bit disjointed.Version: 6.90

Great way to catch up on advertisementsIf you love spending time watching ads, this is the app for you. Not only can you catch up on your favorite sports team or sports analysis, but you can also spend double the screen time on ads. Wanna catch up on highlights from last night’s game? Well that’s simple. All you need to do is select the game, click the highlight reel, watch a 30 second ad for a 10 second highlight clip, and repeat the process 5-7 times. That’s right, every video will have a 15-30 second ad. Before you ask, yes it guaranteed that the app will work perfectly at 1080p resolution for your advertisement and immediately crash your app when your video appears. Also, all of the videos auto play to the next one and pulls up an advertisement that completely freezes your screen so that you are unable to devote time towards any other distractions like sports. It also conveniently puts an ad banner over your menu bar, occasionally, so that way you can quickly access the ad’s website rather than check up on your sports team. Because that’s why you have the app, right? For the ads, not for the sports?.Version: 6.57.0

Menu widgets no content for weeksJust get a black screen with no content no matter what i select.Version: 6.31.1

No ESPN+ in CanadaEmbarrassing.Version: 6.86

ESPN+ Is a MessIf you are using this app to get scores and updates, it’s good. However, I use it for ESPN+ and watch ESPN FC on a daily basis. I must say, the organization of both the phone and Apple TV app is awful. Trying to view the latest episode is so hard, especially on Apple TV. First, there is no feature to subscribe to a show. You just have to browse around to find it. Second, once you get to the episode listings they are not listed chronologically from newest to oldest and are not titled the same way each time. Sometimes they have the date in the title, sometimes they don’t. Sometimes the newest episode is at the top, sometimes it’s in the middle, and other times it’s literally all the way at the bottom. Additionally, if you watch the broadcast live and then pause it, the stream goes all the way back in time to the pre-roll stuff and you can’t go back to live or where you left off! The service seems half baked right now and I’m not sure I’m going to continue to subscribe at this point and time. It’s a shame they relegated ESPN FC to this service..Version: 6.0.2

Always Buggy, Streaming Always PoorI can’t believe such an incredible media conglomerate has such a terribly functioning app with constant broken links, videos that do not play and constant breakdowns in streaming. You expect the best from companies like this and it is one of the worst of all the sports apps I use on a daily basis. This has been going on for a couple years. My buddy just sent me a link to a story, I click it, it goes to some broken link “phantom” US Open streaming coverage page I never watched, as it does every time I’ve opened the app in the last few Months (yes, even after deleting and re-downloading) and then re-directs to the homepage and never to the story it was supposed to be linked too. This was the final straw, the “rate and write a review pop-up” appeared right after and finally, after a few years of being annoyed by this, I had to take my valuable time and give them the rating they deserve. Just sick of it. You upped the price on ESPN+, so how about using some of that to improve the terrible functionality and streaming and work out some of the apps myriad bugs? Figure it out!.Version: 6.92.0

Pure hot garbageStraight from the ESPN garbage factory. Player just blinks and flashes before playing and sport video. Absolutely worthless devs.Version: 6.86

ESPN +You do not get all the matches for Wimbledon and there are ads! Many thumbs down!!!!!!.Version: 6.0.4

Worst streaming app out thereThis app is trash. Every few days it asked me to login again. It has me confirm my subscription through a TV provider. Then, after, confirming, it will just spin forever. Then I have to close it, open it again, and try it again. And variably it doesn’t recognize me. It is the most frustrating, garbage thing you could imagine. It’s bad enough having to reset a password, or having to make a call to a provider to get them to reset your password, this is worse. This is me, confirming that I’ve already paid for the service and this trash of an app not being able to accept that I already have. It’s even worse when they are the only provider of the service you’re trying to stream. Of the game you’re trying to view. I am sitting here watching my television spin once again while I try to watch a football game. On top of everything else it’s near impossible to find programming that you want to actually watch. The way it’s organized is completely the opposite of what you would think would be common sense. I figured that over the past few months, they would’ve done a redesign, maybe fired a person or two who thought they knew what they were doing, and obviously didn’t. But no, it’s still the same, I’m absolute trash. I think it’s fine time to delete this thing. My God ESPN, can’t you get your act together? Good Lord..Version: 6.94.0

Can’t set notifications for specific gamesWhen trying to set notifications with specific NBA playoff games it does not save my preferences. Tried restarting, uninstalling and logging off but it does not work. Turned on only notifications for basketball but still receiving notifications for other sports..Version: 6.84

Links within app don't work and support team don't care much6 February 2023 I have the latest ioS and apple phone and app reinstalled, and the links to scores, details of games from the homepage do not work - all I see is the spinning wheel and a blank screen. Have tried reinstalling etc. Have tried all settings. Nothing. Contacted ESPN app support and they didn't care much to help - just suggested I reinstall the app (which I had already done). GARBAGE !!.Version: 6.80.1

Asking for subscription have ONeBrutal.Version: 6.78

Blackout in CanadaDownloaded, paid to watch PGA Championship and it was a complete blackout in Canada. Maybe my own mistake but still annoyed it wasn’t stated before purchasing..Version: 6.85

ESPN App - terribleThe App is constantly crashing and freezing. Scores barely update normally. It's been a completely useless app for the past year or so. Very unreliable..Version: 6.95.1

Illegal cookie practices.This is a good app, except I need to point out that the ability to add favourite teams doesn’t work unless you consent to cookies. This is illegal in the U.K. where cookies (except essential cookies) should default to reject and not hinder functionality..Version: 6.87

Hate This AppI’ve just wasted half an hour trying to watch a hockey game. Before ESPN took away the NHL app in Australia, it was so easy to do. I could even connect during a game and rewind to the start. With the ESPN app I either have to watch it live or replay it - if it will work. Now it is a lucky dip. I cannot plan when to watch because I can only watch when the app decides to work. When I goto the replay video it can come up with a blank screen or say an error has occurred. Shut down the app, start again. This cycle can go on for five or six times until finally a replay list comes up. BUT, if it has a DONE dialog at the top, then nothing you click on plays. Shutdown the app, start again, and hope you get to the replay screen. Sometimes it takes you to a login screen instead. Got it playing, excellent, connect it via airplay to my AppleTV, but there is a red circle with a line through it where the time in the video normally appears. This means it won’t play. I have to shutdown the app, restart, and try connecting again. Today I got all these issues, but when I finally got to the Kraken Vs Penguins game, it told me there was a video feed error - shutdown player and try again. I did, many times. I could play other games but not this one. If only the NHL hadn’t sold out Australian fans!.Version: 7.0.0

Disappointing No iOS 12.5 support to download appThis used to be a great app and working. Could watch the extended channels for the service in australia like espn u espn news acc sec. its no longer available unless i buy another apple device that has ios 13, Every other usa streaming app is still working on this ios with at-least an older running version of the app available. So disappointing cant watch college football any more. It was working just a few months ago. Espn wont evengives us annolder version of the app..Version: 6.52

Can’t switch editionsStuck on US edition. Useless..Version: 5.12.1

Constant issuesThis app is a really good concept, I’ve had positive experiences but lately the watch section of the app is constantly having speed issues, app freezing. I have only downloaded this app to watch replays of the NHL as I live in Australia. I have no issues with my internet for other streaming services. Whenever selecting replay it freezes and goes to a ‘reload/retry’ page, quite frustrating. I believe ESPN bought out all the rights for the NHL so for us international customers we have lost the use of the NHL app which worked fine, and now have to use a glitchy app that 8/10 times has issues. I just want to watch the Canucks lose..Version: 6.93.1

ESPN app is #rapWhy can’t you morons figure out how to cast this to a TV , clowns last PPV I’m buying, ain't watching on my iPad no more.Version: 6.87

ShockingThat’s 2 minutes of my life I won’t get back!.Version: 6.4.2

Hello, Downunder? We play sports too.I was really loking forward to this app but was greatly disappointed. With such a high profile sports name as ESPN I would have thought this would have been a lot more high powered. And no southern hemisphere sports or teams on offer it seems. Whatever happened to the concept of global sports lovers??? It didn't seem to offer very much with what it had on offer anyway. More teams needed. More sports. Just more of everything....hmmm...we'll see..Version: 2.3.1

Videos don’t stream oftenIt’s ESPN but am surprised how poor the app and their website is. First of all the organization is very clunky. It’s d difficult to find content the way it is organized, and if specially if you’re looking for a game like cricket, which is not very popular in the United States, then it takes many clicks to find what you want. The other and bigger problem is (more on website than app)that often you log on and then you just waiting for content to load. Then you get your screen, click on your game and then you’re waiting forever again for it to load. It is insane the way the website and the app respond..Version: 6.92.0

Recent changes make this app poorThis app was recently updated and now the homepage always shows MLB which no one cares about. Previously it would show your favourite team or league score which the videos or images. So it’s a delete now. Such a shame..Version: 6.33

WHY!!!Scorecenter was a really good app and you ruined it. It's slower with score updates, lags way more, doesn't recognised what the date is and you have to refresh it like 3 times which takes ages. It's pretty rubbish but still provides me with scores and news..Version: 4.0.0

ESPN in Pacific zoneI’ve been happily watching NHL games for a number of years through the paid subscription for their website, but now NHL has games for the region going through ESPN. Despite asking I’ve had no help in trying to watch games as it seems impossible to do so. I have no access to a suitable TV provider, so can’t watch any games - absolute rubbish is what I call it..Version: 6.55

Staring, switching streams is a nightmareIt is unreal how difficult it is to start and switch streams. Let’s take today’s game for an example: game for ESPN is delayed 10 minutes from 6 to 6:10. My game starts on ESPN+ since the prior game on ESPN hasn’t finished yet. Problem 1: If I hit “play” on my stream at 6:00, it will stay on the “your event is about to start” screen well past actual tipoff. It doesn’t switch to start the stream when it starts Problem 2: AFTER the stream starts, I find it and hit play. I’ve already missed the very beginning of the stream since I can’t join it early (see problem 1). Problem 3: I’m happily watching my stream on ESPN+, when the stream cuts out to a loading screen of sorts (presumably the prior game finished on ESPN). Problem 4: I now try to find my game again on the menus, and I do eventually. I click it, and the stream says it hasn’t started yet! Why would one stream cut out (problem 3) when the new one isn’t ready yet (problem 4)? Problem 5: I have to exit out of the stream and find it again on the menus because we established in problem 1 that you can’t stay on a “event has not yet started” or else it may never actually switch to the live feed once it starts. You have to fix these bugs, it makes me loathe it when my team’s games are on ESPN. All of these issues are present on the Roku tv app as well..Version: 7.1.0

Rip offWhy the hell is espn+ 9.99 on the 24th july when the price change is taking place on the 23rd august????.Version: 6.72

No box scores?!The latest version seems to have removed box scores from NBA games. Why??!!.Version: 5.12.1

Good navigation/UI but errors with videoThe user interface and navigation works really well. Only problem I have is when loading video. Takes a while to load and sometimes there are errors loading them. 14NOV17 This problem is still ongoing. Notification arrives on screen, I tap it to load - app opens. Then either I get nothing or spinning wheel..Version: 5.10.3

CachingIt always loses my place in the article, and often the article itself (defaulting to home page) every time I leave the app. Good content tho.Version: 6.17

Doesn’t even workWhy have an app available in Australia if it doesn’t even work here. Just gives a message saying it’s not supported in this region. No message saying it’s coming here soon or anything either. Have tried it several times over the last week and even deleted and reloaded it again but no luck. Can’t believe an app from a major company like this would be so bad..Version: 6.53

Updating my review from negative to positiveBig improvement on last season, am really enjoying it. Because of the time difference between North America and Australia, I often have to watch the games on replay. I can choose to watch a Canadian telecast almost all the time. The picture quality is great, no problems at all. The app could be a little easier to navigate, but not a major problem. Unlike last year, I highly recommend the app. Last NHL season I found this app such a disappointment. As an ex-Pat Canadian living in Australia I wanted to watch Canadian broadcasts of Leafs’ games, as I had always been able to do on the NHL app. Most of the time the ESPN app offered only an American broadcast on replay, done by the American team’s home TV station. These broadcasts were hopelessly one-eyed and the play-by-play call of the game was not well done. Of course, Canadian broadcasts can be a bit one-eyed too, but not as blatantly, and I prefer the Canadian style of calling the game. This year all but three games of the Leafs have offered the option of a Canadian broadcast on replay, and two of those were ESPN National broadcasts which are good, not at all one-eyed, although I still prefer Canadian ones. Thanks for consistently giving the Canadian option..Version: 6.78

No Canadian fans aloudIf you live in Canada your out of luck don’t both downloading.Version: 6.17

App crashes regularlyThis is the only way I can watch NHL in my country, the login screen is crashing again when I try to login to my tv provider, can you please fix this?!.Version: 6.76.1

Useless appThe streaming function on this app is straight out of the early 2000s. Clunky, shuts down when you try to switch between games, you have to use a mobile device to stream it to your TV as it doesn’t have an app for TV platforms, and 50% of the time, that doesn’t work. ESPN has a monopoly on hockey in Australia, and is doing every other sport a service by making it difficult for hockey fans to watch their sport. Needs to be overhauled..Version: 6.92.0

A very tough way to watch American Sports in Australia, but worth it when it works!Considering Aussies used to just pay the NHL subscription to watch and cast games to our tvs, this way without a foxtel subscription is tedious to intiially set up. Fetch box and subscription, $6 sports package, nhl app on iPad, then chrome cast to a tv. When the feeds work, and don’t crash, this is great. The replays are good, just the live streams can have an issue. Currently watching the Baseball Playoffs, and working ok!.Version: 6.76.1

Love the data and info, but the vids on iPhone??Love the app, but not sure if it’s just me.. I have an iPhone XR and when I get the notifications for a video when I click on it it just pin wheels forever and never actually loads. It’s really frustrating. I’ve updated my phone and the app. I fee like it should work, but honestly it hasn’t after many updates. Please fix or advise. Not sure if anyone else is having this problem. Would give 5 stars if this was not a problem..Version: 6.10.4

Widgets and better Football coverageAdding widgets that allow you to quickly see the scores of your selected teams games, upcoming game times, and dates would be a high impact yet easy addition. As for european football, my gripe is that when you click on a team (newcastle in my case) and then go to table, you only see their league standings, to see how they are fairing in the Champions league, FA cup, or any other fixings you either have to; A- look through the league/cup section B - go through the scores section and piece it together bit by bit C - go through the news section scrolling till you find relevant info I recommend add it so that within table, you can select the different leagues and cups they are participating in, where you can see the brackets. Lastly, please make it so that for any league if i am on a game/score, and at the top it says 2023-2024 premier league or spring training, or 2023-2024 NHL regular season… when we try to click on it… please direct us to that league. Right now it is just a piece of text, i think adding a hyperlink would be both easy and useful. And save your users a lot of time. Overall i like and enjoy using the app, i like the structure of everything, and although i am in canada i do love the concept of espn+ and hope it arrives soon..Version: 7.1.0

Push?Where's the push notification?.Version: 0

Paid content should be betterUpdate: Still horrid. Now the App does popup advertising while you are in the middle of watching a live game. It isn’t just because the writing & coverage is way better that people subscribe to other Sports content providers like The Athletic over ESPN. But also because they allow you to filter out the Sports & content you don’t want. ESPN allows you to select the sports and teams you want to follow but they generally ignore these settings and totally overwhelm with content you don’t want. You don’t follow follow MMA or WWE? Too bad ESPN will inundate you with ads and PPV offers before you get to the sport you want. You paid for ESPN? Sucker that doesn’t mean extra value. Too bad we need to make money! Geez you want to filter for the sports you want? Please navigate to the bottom of the screen every friggin time because we ignore & forgot the Sports you like. Oh want to watch 2 games ar once? Oops we forgot the filter setting you set and will show 43 college basketball games you have to sort before getting the 2nd game you wanted. I wish I could get my content elsewhere cause ESPN Is horrid. Can’t believe you clowns give this a 4.6 rating..Version: 6.60

GoodieHave had to delete this off my phone as hardly ever opens and when it does it is so slow as to make it unusable - pity as content is good when it decides to work - never have this problem with other apps.Version: 6.7.2

Piece of junkWatching NCAA Football in Australia on iPad and chrome casting to the tv, and every single time it cuts into a commercial break, about a minute later it loses the connection to the stream. I have to completely close the app and re open the stream and re load it and re connect. Extremely annoying. Still the case 12 months later. Nothing fixed. Piece of junk app.Version: 6.52

No CFlThere is too many ads. This used to be a low ad platform. But now there is almost 2 ads between every video. Very disappointing. I am very disappointed with the fact that this app does not support the Canadian football league or the CFL..As much as I love your app the fact that you do not have CFL or I could not find it it’s not appropriate.Version: 6.90

Videos freezeGood content but videos can freeze.Version: 4.1.2

One annoying thingGreat app. Love it but when viewing the nba results, you can only view the current day. Previous days or future dates show up blank..Version: 4.1.3

Video qualityThe app is okay but video quality is very poor. I can load the website and video highlights play just fine but through the app the quality is awful..Version: 4.11

Subscribers outside USThey bill you with no service Canada..Version: 6.3

Average so farCan’t watch some content on the app but works fine on the desktop site. Also appears that since ESPN have taken the rights to NHL, I’ll be forced to watch games through a laptop screen because the ESPN app does not allow streaming in my region. Massive downgrade from the NHL app….Version: 6.55

Lame appThe app doesn’t work. It doesn’t load properly it’s super slow. It’s super lame..Version: 6.83

Excessive advert length30 seconds adverts between videos really?.Version: 6.9

This is robberyIt’s Saturday morning and I’m trying to watch one tof the Bundesliga games! I select one and wait, only to get a blank screen. So I select another game only to have the same result. This app used to be so reliable that using the 4-up viewing option used to be seamless. You can’t even have 1 match to load now so forget about taking advantage of the other multicast options. When it decides to maybe work, then the commentary you’re hearing doesn’t match the game on the screen. So you get out and start over to experience the issues. It’s like grow hog day! It has this really cool feature that when you select your game, you get all excited and you immediately get taken back the games grid. As I’m writing this review I keep selecting different games and I’m still unable to watch any of them! Let’s try the Celta Vigo vs. Espanyol game in La Liga…. No luck, that did not load either! I’ll tell you what loaded, ESPN’s charge on my CC for a higher subscription cost! Why don’t you follow my lead? I pay on time, you deliver a quality product. FIX IT! FOLLOW UP: Still crashing!!! Can’t watch games! When are you going to fix all the issues with your app? You are charging for a service that you’re not delivering! This is robbery!.Version: 6.74

Glitchiest app I’ve ever usedUnfortunately ESPN has hijacked the NHL. Navigating through games is a chore, especially if you are trying to watch a replay of an older game you may have missed. There’s no date, no rhyme or reason to how they log the replays, you have to know exactly the matchup you’re looking for if you plan on finding it. Using the app on Xbox one is an even bigger nightmare. If you miss the start of a game you have to scroll through the time line , sometimes causing spoilers - to find the beginning, you’d think just taking the timeline back to the start would bring you there but there’s an hour to an hour and a half of “you event will start soon”. Sometimes the rewind and fast forward feature aren’t even there and you have to exit out of the app and go back in hoping it works. Also the play and pause button don’t work while rewinding or fast forwarding. If you want to stop your times roll you have to slow down/speed up the search speed until the arrow is not moving anymore, that causes it to pause, but there’s still no play/resume in option so you have to let the Xbox idle until the search screen goes away, then bring the search screen back up and then you can play/resume from the paused screen. If it sounds like a twisted mess, it is. You shouldn’t have to go through this just to watch a freaking hockey game. ESPN is awful..Version: 6.61.0

Screen mirroring faultThe application on an Apple device will not screen mirror to a late model Samsung TV. It projects the sound but no video. When you minimise the app, you get the pop up screen which actually shows the game but as soon as you try renter the app or open the video to full screen it goes back to a black screen. This doesn’t happen with a Samsung phone to Samsung TV. It’s clearly a programming issue which would be an easy fix but I’m frustrated that there’s absolutely no site to request support for this problem..Version: 6.55

Deceptive tactics and money hungryStop the forced pre roll ads, no one should pay to have ads they can’t skip shoved in their face before watching content they paid for and even worse when live content is missed for nothing but a greedy company. No replays for certain sports and delays with stats or live game feeds, or even a why to tell what feed your watching. Waste of money for anyone viewing multiple games at a time. Nothing but false promises and stealing and deceiving from your customers isn’t a sustainable business..Version: 6.57.0

AwfulJust awful. Very difficult to navigate and find live sport. Sky Sport Now login does not work - just loops endlessly in a black screen.Version: 6.78

Revenue takes priority over serviceUnfortunately recent changes had thrown ads all over the place, to a point were you can no longer select some content within the app (as its blocked by advertisers)..Version: 6.14.1

Why ESPN has lost its wayI am going to be pausing my ESPN viewership even though I’ve been a fan for many many years- I just cannot take the political stance that most of your commentators have. Sports used to be an escape where everybody can come together and just enjoy and forget about what’s going on in the world but now all we hear are opinions and most of them are left leaning from your staff. Hypocrisy is rampant at your company! So quick to judge people that do not wanna have government telling them to inject themselves with an untested improven vaccine. So quick to judge people that refuse to wear a mask when everybody knows they do not work. Your company has come to be everything that is wrong with America right now. Your company has taken a stand that if we don’t agree with you we should be cancelled. Freedom of speech is no longer acceptable in the eyes of the left and since your company has taken that position I can no longer subscribe to your channels. If in the future you go back to just broadcasting sports without all the left leaning political commentary I will go back and start watching again. When your viewership starts to tank you’ll understand that the silent majority has spoken!!.Version: 6.64

Update: Significant improvements made. OLD: Awful, just awfulUpdate: Okay… this is much better. The new layout is going to take some getting used to, but that’s a small price to pay for the improvements that have been made. No longer do I get consecutive TV provider loving screens every time I open the app, and the much hated “Live sports…” endless loop is mercifully changed. The new music isn’t great, but it’s inoffensive and a huge step up from the horrible old loop. We’ll see if some of the bugs I discussed below have been fixed too, but this is promising. Old: You guys need new developers. Simple things like rewinding, staying logged in, not freezing - all appear to be beyond the people you have working on this app. No other major app has these issues. It’s clear you guys don’t care about releasing a working app, you guys just publish this garbage knowing that you have a monopoly on your content. Can’t wait until that changes, because you don’t deserve my, or anyone else’s, business..Version: 7.2.0

Fine appCould do with dark mode support though.Version: 6.10.4

Canadian App Store?I was able to download the app and register but when opening the app I get a warning that ESPN+ is only available in the USA. I was hoping to compare it with apps like Sportsnet and TSN but due to licensing agreements ESPN is off the table. Until Disney can come to an agreement with license holders the app should be removed from the Canadian App Store. On a related note if they do work this out I hope Disney will include it in Disney+ app instead of a separate app 🤔.Version: 6.82

Only good in USMost of the features dont even work thanks to geoblocking. Garbage. Deleted..Version: 6.8.1

Not sure where to rate AppleTV versionThe phone version of this app is...adequate. Could definitely be improved by having a ‘don’t show me’ list, because when have I ever wanted notifications on golf or baseball, but it’s mostly fine. The Apple TV version, however, is hot garbage and I don’t understand why. I’m legitimately hoping someone can help me. There’s no favorite teams/sports list, which means I have to dig for what I want to watch every time. Again, no ‘don’t show me’ list (really good idea, please implement), no replays button on the home screen like there used to be so now to watch last nights game I have to dig...a lot, and worst of all every time I use the app. it. keeps. kicking. me. out. and showing me something about AirPlay despite me having meticulously turned off everything AirPlay related on my Apple TV. This doesn’t happen with other apps, only espn. It makes games unwatchable. ESPN actively makes sports unsupportable. All I want to do is watch my basketball game without having to dig thru layers and layers of menus to find it and without the app crashing every 3 minutes. Someone please help me. 3 stars to the phone version, -3 to the appletv version..Version: 6.4.2

Continual crashingHave used it a lot previously, but whatever updates they’ve made ensures that the app crashes within 5 seconds of opening it, every time. Without fail. Will be awesome when it gets back to working.Version: 6.81

On demand shows too few of US OpenI have subscribed to watch US open but on demand doesn’t show enough. disappointing and will discontinue soon.Version: 6.9

Could be great, but won’t save your place!!I recently subscribed because of the Disney bundle and there are a lot of things I really am liking about ESPN +. I love all the old programming like all the archived Indy 500 races and Mohamed Ali fights. I also really like all the ESPN original programming like Payton’s places and being able to access all of the 30 for 30 episodes. That for me is probably one of the best things about the subscription. My frustration comes because a lot of those shows are long and I don’t watch them in one sitting You would think that there would be a ‘continue watching’ feature like every other paid, streaming subscription but there isn’t. I contacted ESPN and was told to just “remember where you were.” That seems so silly and unnecessary. Please ESPN, add a ‘continue watching’ feature and I will be a 5 star happy customer. As it is right now I have to scroll back through programming, find the show I was watching, click on it, and try to remember where I was and start fast forwarding which is a huge pain if your like me and watch different shows depending on the mood you are in..Version: 6.12

Push NotificationsThe Espn will force push notifications through even after disabling them. You can tell the app not to give you updates on “breaking” news and it will still do it. Oh and what Espn considers breaking news is ridiculous. Most of the time it is just telling you about a instant replay you should watch. Oh? You aren’t interested in that sport and have marked it as no push notification? The Espn app doesn’t care it will still alert you. Also there are about 30 of these breaking news notifications a day so get ready to hear the Espn theme all day long. This is not an update issue. It has been this way since the app was released. It also has a issue where it will give you a notification about an article you should read but when you click on the notification the Espn app will laugh at you, spit in your face, take you to the front page of the app and then tell you that article doesn’t exist. You can find people talking about these same issues over 3 years ago on Reddit and other sites. They have never been resolved. Utter trash of an app.Version: 6.86

Good info but militant advertisingThe app does provide a lot of good info. The issue is the sheer amount and time of advertisements. Im okay with being advertised to, you want to be compensated for the content you create and I’m willing to view some ads for that. But your ad system is horrifically burdensome and ultimately loses you money. Here is why - when you advertise to me for 15 seconds, with the same ad over and over, for EVERY SINGLE VIDEO CLIP no matter the length, I stop watching content and you don’t capture any revenue. Most of what I watch is highlight plays whose clips run for about 25 seconds. Then you show me another ad for 15 seconds, usually the exact same ad, to watch another 25 second replay clip. After 2 of those I get tired of it and just stop watching videos. If you showed me a 15 second clip every 4 videos or so I’d end up watching videos for an hour and you’d advertise to me way way more than you would have showing me ads every 15 seconds. Imagine watching cable and seeing 15 minutes of ads for every 25 minutes of the show you are watching. You’d stop watching cable. As is the case with your ridiculous ad system in your app. Guarantee yo change your ad length and occurrence and you’ll see revenue jump..Version: 6.59

Slow and crashes a lotThe app will crash continuously and is often very slow. Also the app doesn’t display stats and the espn+ isn’t available in Canada which is extremely unfortunate.Version: 6.5

User optionsHow do I choose whether I want to see female or male sports stories? Similarly, it is all very well having favourites but it needs an exclusion option so that European users can avoid NFL, baseball etc..Version: 6.57.0

SO MANY ADSThe amount of ads you have to watch (which are the exact same for each clip) are pretty much as long as the content itself. And you can’t close the ad once it’s started. Very annoying. Almost as annoying as auto play video on the website..Version: 6.57.0

Needs filter options!I love using widget from this app to display football scores but i really wish i had a way of filtering out info about sports such as baseball or american football that i have no interest in. Would make things way less cluttered and easier o navigate to the info you actually want..Version: 6.28.1

Great Streaming / Content; Horrible UI and customizationIf there’s an event to watch or immediate sports news, the ESPN app is the place to watch and stay up to date. If you don’t want to know everything about the most popular sports and the sports that espn is most actively advertising, this is not the app for you. Especially if you’re paying for ESPN plus - not worth it. They do a great job from a business perspective of holding content captive but, once you’re forced to get a membership in order to watch a UFC PPV, and you think “oh cool, I’ll get some awesome content” - think again. With the lack of customization, it’s utterly disappointing. You get a lot of content but, if you’re a fight fan, the amount of content available is abysmal. Beyond that, it’s a nightmare to search for the content you want or to see specific news and updates unless that happens to coincide with whatever espn is pushing. It’s seemingly impossible to customize your feed and, even tho you pick favorites, there doesn’t seem to be an easily accessible favorites feed. I’m pretty disappointed..Version: 6.6.2

Not letting me check stats during game.I quite enjoy using this app. As an Australian it’s great that this has afl scores as well as nba and nfl scores. But recently the app hasn’t been letting me open the game stats and other in depth features while the games are on. I would go to check who’s scoring in the nba or who the goal kickers are in the afl but if the games is still happening it won’t open. There will just be a loading screen and it will be stuck on that for minutes before I just give up and stop trying. For the nba it lets me check the stats afterwords but even if the games over I can’t check the afl stats. this only started happening recently and I don’t know whether it’s the app or my device but if it’s happening to other people I can’t recommend this app until it is fixed. I can’t comment on other issues people have be facing as I don’t use the app to watch stuff but even still I would recommend a different app..Version: 6.68

Not available in Canada?Why would the UFC get behind this crap!? If a espn+ subscription would be joined with TSN and i could get the UFC content there, then i will rate this crappy app better. Or just make your videos available in Canada..Version: 6.10

App user experience is bottom of the barrelIf I go to watch a short video clip (highlights for example), I’m always forced to watch an ad that is often longer than the actual clip despite the fact I pay for ESPN+. Also, on PS4, the video controls and time bar will not leave the screen unless controller is turned off. I checked Reddit, and this problem has persisted for 2 years. It’s mind-blowing that a company with the power of ESPN wouldn’t fix this immediately. The phone app doesn’t work with Googlecast on the TV; it never has for me. The app does not keep track of show progress so you can easily jump back into a season where you left off. This is the only streaming app I know of with this issue. It’s confusing for an app to have all of these issues for so long…and never have any of them fixed. It makes it much worse when you look at the assets available to espn/Disney. It’s frustrating that paying for ESPN+ doesn’t include the typical espn content like Sportscenter in the age of cord-cutting. The ONLY reason I give it 2 stars instead of 1 is because I find the ufc content entertaining…especially TUF. Basically the only reason I use this app..Version: 6.70

Very sluggish on XS MaxApp slows down phone and drains battery massively. Making the app unusable. Please fix!.Version: 6.10

ESPN destroyed being able to watch NHL in AustraliaIt was working, it was a very clunky process, but it worked last year. Now, ESPN is the only provider of NHL in Australia (almost the rest of the globe can just go through NHL), and you block being able to screen cast to a tv??? Why?? In 2023, I have to watch hockey on an iPad? Why buy it to destroy the viewing experience for everyone when it did work! It was easier to watch NHL here in 2010 than it is now. It’s embarrassing All that needs to happen, is stop blocking being able to share it from a device to a tv? I’m paying for it each month!!!.Version: 6.80

Good but one annoying problemIf you are reading this and not sure if you want to download the app, I'd say its good and you definitely should. To anyone developing this app who might read this, the notifications are a bit broken, you can turn on notifications for goals and match start etc but you can't turn on team news notifications and you can't turn on notifications for a league. Please fix this because I don't just want to hear the results for my favourite team, i want all games..Version: 6.24

False subscriptionDownloaded and subscribed monthly so we could watch the US Open tennis, Ladies Singles Final, but nothing I read said that I could not watch the US tennis on the app. However when I tried to access todays live tennis, got a message that not my area, so could not watch. Oh well, cancelled subscription, and did not have any use for the month I’d paid for..Version: 6.53

App Problems & Poor Customer ServiceI have ESPN+ and am a ufc fan. For the longest time when you click a ppv event the page comes up with the card and to select which fight to stream. All of a sudden about 10-15 ppv ago the app broke and it just shows the load screen indefinitely. I spent couple hours on the phone with customer support who said there was no issue they saw and would monitor. Spent about 30-45 min of them trying to blame my service connection speed. There was also a load problem getting into my ESPN+ profile to see my subscription info and to cancel/renew. They did not acknowledge that problem either. Needless to say I canceled my auto renewal while on the phone. After 4-6 weeks the problem still exists. The problem doesn’t exist if logging in and viewing through web browser so it’s clearly an app problem they won’t acknowledge. It’s unfortunate because prior to that I had no complaints or issues with the service. Now as they continue to ratchet up subscription costs each year by 20%+, and roughly 40% this coming year your supposed to ignore their issues and lack of technical support. Hopefully ufc partners with someone else in the future..Version: 6.78

It has been ruinedThe ESPN app has been my go-to app for sports news, scores, and recaps for a long time. But it has been ruined with the latest updates and redesigns. The app is almost unusable these days. Even when I am at home, on wifi, with nothing else running on my phone, the app is slow and crashes often. Don’t even think about using it at a game or anywhere your connection isn’t perfect. They have overburdened the app with video, ads, and cookies that slow it down to a crawl or even just prohibit you from even being able to open the app at all. Today I finally jumped onto the apps “text support” to see what I could do to improve my experience. Unfortunately the ESPN support rep proceeded to first accuse me of having a bad connection. I pointed out that he was incorrect and the rep then informed me that the app stores a lot of cookies and I should just delete the app and reinstall it. This is an annoying suggestion but I did it anyway. There was no improvement. And the tactless interaction with the rep definitely did not help the situation. The point is, you can do better. Go find another app that works and was designed by a company that still cares about their user base..Version: 5.11

Annoying defaultsI find it so frustrating that 1) closed captions are turned on by default when streaming, 2) there is no apparent option to change this default setting, and 3) the closed caption toggle icon in the upper right corner of the screen mysteriously disappears when using airplay to cast to a TV so you have to go back to your device to turn off cc and then re-cast to airplay and this behavior is super inconsistent and because cc turns back on by default every time you switch streams you have to keep doing this. Terrible design! Also why is it that when streaming a soccer match the stream essentially freezes the at halftime and doesn’t recover on its own so you miss the first few minutes of the second half, expecting the stream to “just work” and go back to the match when it restarts but instead you have to stop and start the stream (and once again turn off closed captions, on by default). Did anyone actually try using this app after coding it? You can do a lot better Disney..Version: 7.0.0

Nearly Impossible to StreamIt’s nearly impossible to use this app to stream. It’s slow to open, slow to load, sometimes just won’t load at all. Then when you’re streaming to Apple TV or Chromecast it intermediately buffering and the entire app needs to be rebooted. You would think a company like ESPN would have a decent app..Version: 6.55

Trash tier app.This app is the worst piece of junk I’ve ever had the chance to use. Crashes continuously during broadcasts, spams me with notifications late at night about sports I don’t care about, insists on showing scores for the last game when you try to watch a replay. 1 star review is still too high. Consider piracy before going down this path..Version: 6.78.1

Probably the worst app I’ve owned, but I love ESPN contentIf you ask me what the worst app I own is, I could tell you without hesitation it’s the ESPN+ app. The ESPN corporate guys know it’s terrible, too - I live near the ESPN headquarters, and when I meet a guy that works there, I often tell them I have the app on my phone and they immediately flinch and start to tell you unsolicited that they can’t help with the app and their department has nothing to do with it. I have do delete it and reinstall it about once a month to get it to work. And, I need to log in through the website to successfully launch the app. After that, it will work correctly for typically a month before going haywire again. I’ve never had an app behave like this in the 5 years I’ve been on apple. It is not up to the standards of a major apple app. The content is also extremely disorganized. I’ve kept this app for 2 years because I truly enjoy the ESPN content. But, after two years, I still never know which fights it will and won’t let me see. There are some labels that are clear on what is pay-per-view - and some that aren’t (?). Great content, but it’s the only app I’ve ever owned that makes me want to toss the phone across the room - about once a month.Version: 6.57.0

MehGetting really sick of having to change notification preferences.. every time I update the app I have to turn off breaking news... newsflash I have no interest in the sports you keep sending me notifications for, it should be obvious by my favourites in the app given not a single one is basketball but I keep getting basketball “breaking news”.. fix it to save preferences..Version: 6.6.2

Horrible app servesI rely on ESPN for all my sports needs.. I have given Disney alone a large chunk of my entertainment money to your company for close to 30 years. For this day and age and with all the competition I feel ESPN, and Disney should have better applications. Specifically the ESPN app on my PlayStation. It barely works and usually skips any live game I’m ever trying to watch. It’s easier to illegally stream and that shouldn’t be the case when I’m paying and have been for years. I have made multiple complaints over the years to no avail. Not even a simple response that y’all are sorry. There have been no updates or improvements to make the apps more user-friendly. Soon enough somebody will jump on it but as a loyal customer for 30 years I do feel obligated to mention a lot of people are fed up with Disney’s extremist mentality. ESPN should be strictly sports and not politics. I know a lot of people that are refusing to use any of their applications and changing their fantasy football leagues as well. I’m sure y’all will start to notice to drop off soon enough and I hope this review is helpful because ESPN was my favorite channel and place for good viewing pleasure my entire life but I can’t say the same anymore. I hope next time to leave a more positive review..Version: 6.73

AwfulCrashes after a minute of reading.Version: 6.64

No Reason They Cant Do BetterI read the top review that is two years old and it echos my feelings for the most part. The app is slow, unreliable, and the interface doesn’t seem like it’s changed since I first downloaded it to my phone 8 years ago. I love when I get a notification that I actually have some interest in and tapping it to be take to the app to stare at a black screen for eternity because it NEVER loads. Then when you reopen the app to try and find the article it’s like it never existed. Good luck trying to find any specific article or video you’re looking for. You only get to see what ESPN wants you to see. I don’t watch UFC or MMA so why do they keep sending me notifications for it? The best part is when you watch a video and the 45 second ad plays perfectly then the actual video doesn’t load and you have to reload the app and watch the ad again. Then the video ends and it goes straight into another ad before you can rewind it to watch the 5 second highlight again. Soooo bad and they don’t have to improve because there is no real competition. Super sad they are complacent.Version: 6.37.2

Complete NHL experience downgrade!Having to move to this App from the dedicated NHL one has been a terrible viewing experience. No Apple or smart TV dedicated version, casting doesn’t work from IOS devices, no dual screen, Picture in Picture, goal cam, restricted to a single device, crashes, freezes, and more…….Version: 6.60.1

False AdvertisingThe ESPN+ app presents live sports events and upcoming sports events. If you click to watch one, it asks you to subscribe to view content. Once you subscribe, you can only view a small selection of the content. Most events require an additional TV subscription. So essentially, subscribing to ESPN+ just allows you to use their app as a platform to stream sporting events from your other TV subscriptions (most of which have their own separate app that works great on its own). It’s false advertisement on ESPN+’s part. And their customer service recommended to watch the sports I want, to continue paying for their monthly subscription but to use a different streaming “free trial” every week until I run out of free trials. My issue isn’t that i can’t afford a TV subscription, it’s that ESPN+ has made watching sports an extremely confusing mess of intertwined subscriptions. And don’t get me started on their “black outs” which add an ADDITIONAL hurdle into watching your sports teams. A hurdle, of which there is no legitimate work around (i learned this after speaking with multiple streaming provider customer services). And in addition, Apple doesnt refund the subscription. Thanks ESPN+ for continuing to limit our viewing experience and decrease my patience for watching or even caring about sports..Version: 6.90

Garbage app, company and contentWoke crappy content NOBODY CARES ABOUT THE WNBA OR WOMANS SOCCER ALSO DO NOT USE MY DATA TO RUN ADS.Version: 6.89.0

Decent app, variable contentThe app works well, and if you’re interested solely in US sport there’s very good coverage. However in common with the ESPN channel generally the reporting on other sports is usually weak. If you’re interested in soccer, cricket, motorsport, etc look elsewhere..Version: 6.47

Subscription doesn’t work on laptopI bought the subscription which mentioned $10 on app, but ended up charging $12.99 through Apple store. But the worse is, I can’t access the subscription on laptop. I called support and they said they couldn’t even find my subscription - spent an hour looking for it. I went and cancelled after a day the subscription since they still can’t find my active subscription. They are asking me to buy subscription again through website and can’t refund this because it’s through Apple. Seriously, how hard it is to manage one account for subscription in 2022? Super annoying!.Version: 6.76.1

Too many ads, freezes and short clipsVideos have ads that last as long as the clips themselves. App often black screens and pages fail to load. Have used the app for years and it hasn't changed..Version: 6.74.2

Do not purchase PPVPurchased PPV, paid for yearly subscription, once paid for, the app suddenly showed a message stating that ‘it could not stream in my area’. Tried to get a refund, only got refunded the yearly subscription, there was nothing Apple could do with refunding the PPV which I couldn’t even stream even though it was paid for and happened to work long enough to take my money..Version: 6.31

Too many adsAnd they are big! Clogs up the feed.Version: 6.81

Wish I didn’t have to use thisFreaking ridiculous. Being forced to use this app as nhl tv doesn’t work in Australia now, but was assured that every game would be broadcast on the ESPN app - but what do you know IT’S NOT! It’s horrible to navigate, doesn’t differentiate between home and away feeds, cuts out casting at strange times, and doesn’t show the intermission reports. Would not be using this if I didn’t have to..Version: 6.55

TV Provider?? This is a subscription service already.App functionality is good. I haven’t experienced any crashes or problems and it’s laid out well and intuitive. That all said, they really have to figure out a way to have no blackouts for teams you follow and care. They ask for a TV provider even I subscribe to ESPN+ (paying monthly fee). The reason I subscribe to ESPN+ is to watch live sports without the cable subscription (or the Live TV streaming service) with 50 other channels I really don’t care about. This might not be ESPN’s fault but the whole segregated licensing deals with sports has become ridiculous, a company as big as Disney should start doing something about it. Apple stood up to wireless cell companies and did not let them load the iPhones with bunch of crap advertisement software back in 2007. I am looking forward to a streaming service that lets you select your team(s) and provides you with all the games. I know it’d be (much) more expensive than $6.99 (what ESPN+ costs) but it could be worth it - if they do it right..Version: 6.56

Very unhappy and requiring refundI tried everything that I could to cancel this order immediately after I saw t+cs and costs .then find money missing from my bank account????this is not over....Version: 6.3

Poor streamingIf this is the new technology they have come up with the most unreliable technology possible. It drops out every 5-10 minutes. Freezes every 8- 12 minutes. Junk.Version: 7.1.0

An exercise in futilityFirstly: I subscribed because of the UFC partnership so my experience is limited to that aspect. First problem is the interface. Everything is just jumbled it. The site has a million different links even once you select the MMA tab and it is unclear where to go. There are multiple search tabs and as far as I can work out, none of them allow you to search for specific fights. Searching for fights on these (I.E. Dillashaw vs. Cejudo) just seems to give you a mash of news articles, fighter profiles and press clips. Scrolling down to the 'binge fight' sections is not much better. The fights are splayed out in no particular order and the replays are intermingled with highlight versions. No way that I can discern to look for a specific fight. When I finally found Cejudo vs Dillashaw (which aired exclusively on this platform) it said the fight hadn't occurred yet. It was two weeks ago. Customer Service: I decided to try the chat support. The first time I was connected to a rep. When I asked a question, the rep ended the chat. Second attempt I've been waiting for 35 minutes and running. How can the biggest sports network on earth be this terrible..Version: 6.2.2

Final strawThe app is terrible, and always has been. It’s running joke among my friends about how bad ESPN’s app and the old “WatchESPN” were and somehow still are. I stuck with it because I love sports and grew up with it. I mean, c’mon, it’s ESPN. A beacon for sports around the world, or at least it use to be. Nowadays, the politics have gotten too much. I’m not a ‘cancel everything that has a different opinion than me’ person, but it’s clear ESPN and those running it don’t want me as a customer. The final straw was a notification of a “Racial and Gender Report Card.” That alone probably wouldn’t have been enough to cut me off, but it’s been a constant, ever-increasing attitude from ESPN for years now. I stayed on hoping they’d change, but it’s clear at this point that isn’t happening. It’s clear ESPN only wants extreme left-wing viewers, or at the very least wants to shame those that aren’t. There’s enough really good sports news/scores apps out there that I feel I won’t miss it too much. Here’s to hoping the normal, non-extremists win out there in the end. I know they’re there and likely outnumber the ideologues. But I’ve been hoping that for awhile and been disappointed. What a shame..Version: 6.83

Everything Except Streaming is GreatESPN, I have been all ESPN ever since I was old enough to care about sports. The writing and reporting is phenomenal, and I love to be the one in my family to break the biggest sports news. The app is great with notifications on your favorite teams and leagues as well as breaking sports news. The radio streaming and podcasts are great especially my favorites (Lebatard Show, Golic and Wingo, and 30 for 30). I will continue to use this app for all of those reasons. I do however wish you guys had full game highlights online, but I digress. The only bad thing I have to say is how god awful the streaming is. Tried to watch the ECF between cavs and Celtics and it lagged throughout the entire game when casting it to my chrome cast. It did the same just trying to watch on my phone and I have gigabit internet. I don’t know why that has always been an issue for ESPN. It has sucked since the first release of WatchESPN. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!! I’m begging you because the wife kicks me out of our tv room when I’m trying to watch the games! Thank you ESPN, and keep up the good work!.Version: 6.0.2

Crappy appThis app is awful. Spend most of game time restarting after commercial breaks..Version: 6.81

Good, but a poor attempt at a “UK edition”It’s overall a good app, however when on the UK edition, the home page is dominated by US sports. Currently Wimbledon and the Ashes are happening, yet the first thing you see on the app is a basketball score. Why offer a UK edition if it’s just going to be a US version?.Version: 6.87

Come onThe results are what they are but a bit of objectivity in the articles would help..Version: 6.57.0

Poor App, difficult to connect/watchI honestly have difficulty deciding which is worse, the ESPN app or the website, as far as being able to view live games. Typically, I have to log in and out 5-10 times and independently log in to my cable provider 5-10 times each time I want to stream live games or replays. It’s quite amazing how many times you can be told that your cable subscription does not cover the live stream only to find out, on the 10th attempt, that it does. Considering it’s listed as one of the supported cable subscriptions, I’m guessing the 10th time is accurate. I have considered the possibility that it’s related to my cable provider, but since I experience the same issues with my ESPN+ subscription without going through my cable provider, I’m guessing it’s not. Of note, ESPN+ won’t be renewed. I remember watching ESPN when I was young and have continued to do so as I approach middle age, but the difficulty in accessing programming with more modern technology is quite frustrating and makes me want to find another avenue to watch my football, baseball, etc. Disney, if you’re reading this, you could really help improve the quality by fixing some of these issues before a mass exodus of subscribers who watch on mobile devices or their computers..Version: 6.13.1

A truly terrible appWhile it “works” in that you can watch videos, this app is missing many obvious features and is absolutely terrible on any somewhat older iOS device. 1. You can’t hide scores in the app - This is like a no brainer. When I open the app to watch a live or on demand game, I don’t want to know the score. What’s the point of watching (particularly on demand games) when you know your team won or lost already. You can choose to default to the “watch” tab which seems to have less spoilers but every tab has scores on it and it fails to work most of the time and you are taken to the home tab, particularly if the app was left open in the background. 2. Time spoilers - there’s no way to hide the progress bar and time remaining so this also often spoils what’s going to happen. 3. Chromecast integration is embarrassingly bad. Slow, laggy, loses the connection so it keeps playing but you can’t control it. Just terrible. 4. No way to automatically queue on demand games. If you know I like a team, why not have an on demand queue and add all recorded games to that queue? 5. Slow and laggy on anything even remotely older. Performance is terrible on any older device. 6. No progress syncing between devices. If I’m logged into the same account on my iPad, iPhone and Apple TV, why does my progress in a game not sync between them? This is the year of our lord 2022, progress syncing has existed for like a decade but apparently ESPN has never heard of it..Version: 6.77

Quality of ArticlesI use the app for updates on scores mainly. The content in terms of writing, is often old, and without substance that would differentiate from merely the score. Redundancy seems to be the theme with ESPN. Let’s just write and speak the same things over and over regardless of the audience be it on an app or television. I miss Peter Gammons and his writing, but I will compliment Buster Olney for his piece on the Red Sox. ESPN needs more of that, and less of the redundancy. Return to the daily writing of yesteryear! Do some actually research and writing! There’re stories out there, and one of them is the return of “heat, cheese, hard-ball” through a proliferation of hard throwing relievers and starting pitching that has brought baseball back full circle. Spinning is still statistically important, but good old country hardball has returned! Here it is, hit it if you can is what every fan wants to see! Nathan Eavoldi showed the world that, of the many players in today’s game who have had Tommy John Surgery, a return to, and in some cases, new found power pitching is possible. So, country hardball, and Hope should be the theme to talk about in much more depth. Seek out minor leaguers, follow them as well, and shed light on what’s the biggest development in baseball today..Version: 6.3

Air play doesn’t workI have the app so I can watch NHL. When I watch it on the iPad or iPhone, I can get both sound and picture. As soon as I try to AirPlay to my TV, I can only get sound, no picture. This is very frustrating and appears to be a common issue for Australian users who access American sports through this app..Version: 6.76.1

To many advertsThis is ridiculous you shouldn't be putting 12 second adverts before your videos. Sort it out espn!!!!.Version: 3.0

The new version is almost uselessWhen it says that it is now "easier to get news and scores of ALL of your favourite teams," they actually mean that they have made it harder to follow the majority of your favourite teams unless they are in the NBA or NFL. The app no longer shows upcoming games for English Premier League or La Liga and news is harder to find. So the app is good for US sports but useless for overseas sports. It does look cool though....Version: 4.0.0

Leaf gamesThe Leafs are not on very often so it is useless while we are in Florida.Version: 6.79

Update to iOS 13Always been a big fan off the app, however latest update means I can no longer use the app as I have an “old” iPad that won’t update past iOS12. Surely in this day and age we should use a product till it breaks, rather than have to buy a new unit every few years or so when it works perfectly. Booo to Apple and ESPN.Version: 6.42

A complete bait and switchSeveral of our friend group signed up to watch spring sports. Little did we know that only a very small portion of the things shown on the app are available. Separate subscriptions are required for every “sub-channel” on the site. Had we know this ahead of time we could have made an Informed decision. Unfortunately this was nowhere while we were signing up, we were just left to be disappointed in the first weekend. When we called the first customer care guy hung up on us. There was no cussing or rudeness, he simply just seemed like he didn’t care. When we called back we got an lovely woman that explained the terms that weren’t shown during sign up. Although disappointed she said there was nothing she could do. It’s not her fault the company had sketchy advertising. ESPN has definitely lost some customers. Your embarrassingly awful customer care experiences just backed up the fact that this is completely income based with no regard for the humans that are your customers. We won’t be back and will spend our money going forward on companies/networks that value the customer experience..Version: 7.0.0

Please update so videos are optimized to iPhone X5 stars once this is done.Version: 5.11

Poor streaming appPretty poor for one of the biggest sports broadcasters in the world. iPhone app has no access to replays of games so no ability to watch something delayed. No spoiler protection. No ability to skip to key moments in the game. Here in Australia we’re stuck with this mess now instead of the official NHL app. Hey developers: download the NHL app, you might learn a few things!.Version: 6.64

Can’t login to watch ESPN since updateSince I downloaded the latest update it won’t let you login to watch ESPN. When selecting sky as tv provider it comes up with a blank screen when it should redirect to a skygo login..Version: 6.73

Confusing Battery KillerThe user interface doesn’t make any logical sense. Content is just kind of randomly scattered everywhere. It’s not clear where to go to watch a game and there’s no central schedule. You can see an individual team’s schedule, the most popular games in a specific league or cup (but not always in chronological order), or the big games in a sport (neither in order nor a complete list). And the order seems to change while you’re using the app! But the worst part is the battery draining while streaming. I wanted to watch a soccer game and started with 50% battery, so I plugged my phone in. By half time—with my phone plugged in and charging—the battery level had *dropped* to 18%! So I put it on low power mode, dropped the screen brightness, closed some background apps, turned off cellular and Bluetooth to use Wi-Fi only, and let it recharge during the fifteen minute break. I was able to watch the end of the match, but the battery had *continued to drain* and was at literally 3% when the final whistle blew. How is that even possible?.Version: 6.6.2

ESPN - Lost in wokeismDisliked a lot of the sports apps out there, and so I tried ESPN again to see if they could at least hold an app that wouldn’t glitch. To my surprise, it doesn’t glitch, but they seem to push an extremely strong race narrative that I, and the rest of the country, have come to abhor. The app is no better than ANY of their major network programs, and I will not support an anti-American, divisive platform that only tries to pitt minorities vs whites instead of reporting about sports!!! Dinger is now the N-word - poor Dinger…. While one of their OWN a DAY LATER drops an accidental N bomb LIVE on their show and NOT A PEEP from ESPN or ANYONE else (it was an obvious mistake but she didn’t look to be very black either)!!! You mine as well hire Jeffrey Toobin at this point and turn your show into a soft core porn application, because I can’t find anyone who would want to subscribe to this race hating nonsense your network spews… you whole Disney organization is rotted to the core. I was hoping for an application, I got another indoctrination tool. Saw a few of your employees on the news in FL recently again…. Lot of Pedos on your team… interesting….Version: 6.50

Crashes constantlyTrying to watch the NHL through this is a test of your patience and perseverance. Have to reset every single time! You also get no pre or post match coverage..Version: 6.76.1

Was great now crashing out after secondsNot sure why but now ESPN app crashes out after a few seconds of use every time.Version: 6.2.1

BugsPlease fix this app, it hasn't been loading properly for months! It freezes or doesn't even load the front page..Version: 6.6.2

Chromecast drops out every commercial breakWithout fail, live game feed times out on Chromecast during EVERY commercial break. Not a great user experience. Also, games that may be running long or in OT disappear from the Live Games section after their preset broadcast window has passed. Pretty rough for viewers who might want to catch the ending of the game..Version: 6.55

So much money, make a better app!This is genuinely one of the worst apps I have on my phone. The streaming feature almost never works for what I want to watch, for some reason it just does the loading circle and then just goes back to nothing? This isn’t a result of my service because it does the same thing on high speed wifi as well. The design of the app itself is also horrendous, it self promotes its own ESPN+ viewing options making it almost impossible to use to find what you actually want to watch if it’s on ACC network, SECN, B10N etc. I pay for ESPN on cable, as well as all of these networks and have to individually search each sports team’s name I want to watch to possibly find a stream that I am promised through my ESPN subscription, only to find that the stream is absolutely awful or blacked out. Only reason I’m not giving this godforsaken app 1 star is because I can sometimes watch sports on it and I like sports so much that somehow this awful app gets a pass. It somehow pisses me off more than the hbo max app which is the actual worst app on the market. These apps are the blueprint for pirates, if you want your content to get pirated, create the worst possible app/platform ever that’s literally impossible to use even if you’re a subscriber to the service..Version: 6.60.1

Slow and disappointingSo far, this app has been great, but there are a few things that make me rate less than a 5 or 4. I primarily use this app for baseball, as football season hasn't started. I just installed this app it to see if it was better that other baseball viewing apps I own. So far, the interface is great and well designed, but the app is SLOW! It takes a long time to start up, and it has a hard time with simple actions in general such as clicking on the details or score of a game. So far, I have had no problem with the live TV viewing aspect of it, but it should be noted that I haven't used it much as I am at home with my TV. The main thing that annoys me the most is that when I click on a player up at bat in the app, it brings me to a glitched version of the app’s website. You are unable to scroll, and have to use a drop down menu to continue on to the stats. Then when you finally get the stats, there is barely anything! In other apps, I can click on the player an instantly get an in-app page of TONS of stats, just like it should be! ESPN, fix this please!.Version: 6.1

ADS are killer!It is obnoxiously frustrating that I see the same ad 10 times because I’m watching 7 short clips of sports. It’s seriously awful. If I click on a video, there’s an ad. If I click the next video, there’s the same ad. If I finish the video, and want to get back to an article, I can’t. I don’t know how (or why!!) but I actually can’t close the video without closing the app, being forced to watch the ad. It’s incredibly infuriating. I can’t customize the app like I used to be able to. I basically only care about the NFL, and my favorite team is the Seahawks. But I can’t ever find NFL news or highlights easily (much less Seahawks!!!) because the app is flooded with every other sport. No one has time to care about EVERY sport! Let us customize the app and get the videos and news of what we want to see! None of this matters, I’m just venting because the corporate millionaires who run the app don’t care about any of us normals who just want to have a convenient app. The problems (legitimate problems in my opinion) will never be fixed..Version: 6.55

Slow and UninvitingI am completely in shock this application has any 5 star reviews at all, there are so many inherent bugs and problems with this app. The application takes millions of years to load up every time, even though most of the data that is being loaded is simple numbers and pictures. The interface of the application is not conducive to finding something you need, the NBA G League and then the NHL is the first sports that shows up in my ‘scores’ section however I have NEVER touched these tabs, I frequently use the NFL NBA and MLB tabs and they are always the hardest to find why would you make it that way. More than 75% of the time when you want to read an article or watch a video from your notifications outside of the application it will load the background of the ESPN app and you could leave it open for a year you’re never getting your article or video to open up or play. And then, once you’ve opened that notification and it’s gone you will never be able to find that article or video because the videos and articles section is IMPOSSIBLE to find what you need either. Overall this app infuriates me every other day with the ridiculous bugs and glitches that seem like it’s been there for years, easy ad payment cash grab for money hungry ESPN. Fix your app.Version: 6.61.2

GarbageESPN provides the worst service possible. You pay for a subscription, find whichever sport you want to watch and you will be prompted with buying a more expensive package. For example, I purchased the ESPN+ package for a year, once I’m logged in (doesn’t matter what platform, xbox, iphone, etc.) the app either crashes when you try to stream something or give you the good ol’ message “unauthorized user” or “login to tv provider”…. So considering I cancel my TV services specifically to switch to streaming services, only to find out ESPN will require you to login to a TV provided.. It goes to to show how useless the service is. Past are the days you can watch your local college football team without paying premium prices. Not to mention, whichever team you follow, it’s likely they will broadcast games on other networks through out the season.. meaning ESPN doesn’t always have the game available for your team. I’ve found myself scrambling to find the game on other networks because ESPN cannot provide. It will only cost more overtime. Choose what’s important to you because this service is NOT worth it..Version: 6.57.0

NHL Coverage PatheticI have given a 1 only because there is game coverage. Unlike the NHL app which offered fantastic game access, ESPN is a poor replacement. Unfortunately since ESPN obtained the NHL broadcasting rights Australian fans have very limited viewing options. No longer can we watch game replays whenever we want. If you don’t watch a game live then there is no other option to see it, which during the week isn’t possible as games are on during regular working hours. Used to be able to watch game replays after work. Extremely disappointed that we are stuck with this pathetic option..Version: 6.95.0

In-app Ads are Terrible, Streaming doesn’t workThe built in ads that appear within the feed of scores are the most poorly designed buttons of all time. The ads will open with a simple scrolling motion, not even a click. It’s constantly redirecting me to the App Store or safari when I’m just trying to scroll past. Also, ads embedded within videos will play with no option to back out of the video screen. You’re forced into watching an ad for a video you don’t intend to watch! A 30-second ad will play for every video clip regardless of duration, and a new one will begin after a clip ends without being able to back out of it. Give the ads a rest. You already charge $10 a month for an espn+ subscription and you continue to cram ads down the users throat while providing generally terrible video clips. Also, I’ve completely given up trying to stream video through my TV subscription. Streaming has NEVER worked despite having an active tv subscription. Don’t advertise a product that you can’t support on your mobile app. The ONLY nice thing about the app is the relative accuracy of the real time score updating..Version: 6.78

Won’t Airplay NHL Games to Samsung Smart TVThe ESPN app is a total disaster for watching NHL games. ESPN/Disney has taken what used to be a good viewing experience in Australia for NHL hockey on my TV via Airplay with the NHL app & completely destroyed it by forcing people to use thier bug & glitch filled piece of junk. After a very slow & non-intuitive process to find the game you want to watch & then another clunky process to associate your ESPN TV service, the App then blocks streaming to your TV via Airplay. Now it is not possible to view your game of choice on TV. If it was possible to award negative stars then I would do this. Way to go ESPN / Disney for gross underachievement!.Version: 6.63

App not loadingThe Apple ESPN app is not loading. It was working for a long time; however, it has not loaded for a week. I just get a blank screen..Version: 6.6

Deleted 1 day after buyingI bought espn+ to catch the football game Friday night (sugar bowl) and I tried and tried to get the game on but it kept saying “your package doesn’t have this content available” and with up charging they coulda had a sale Friday night because I needed that game on! But no matter what I did the game would not play nor tell me how to upgrade so I could watch the game. I searched and searched for over an hour while my party was going on and could not find a way to up upgrade further than ESPN+ in order to watch this game that it claims you could watch on their app by upgrading!!! Sorry espn your app does not work well and the app designers should be paid more to make it a better app in my opinion. In business if your having trouble then that means your not investing enough into you business and that tells me there is major greed going on in the upper management. My suggestion: pay your employees more and if that doesn’t work then hire new app designers because there is a lot of missing information that needs to be accounted for in the design of this app..Version: 6.59

Ben Harrison, President/ownerESPN just screwed college football and dismantled any credibility it still had by not choosing FSU. FSU would beat Michigan, Washington and Texas. The only team that would give FSU a real game would be Alabama because they have a running QB. So wins don’t matter? Michigan was the weakest team of the last two CFPs. TCU smoked Michigan last year before getting crushed by Georgia. The best team Michigan has beat in 3 years was last year against a good Ohio State team and that is a rivalry game. Michigan and Washington are way overrated. Don’t get me started on the “who would be favored in what games if FSU was in the playoff?” Oregon was a huge favorite to beat Washington by 9 and lost by 3. How does that justify anything? If that is the method then why play any games? FSU does not need to play a bowl game. I could not recommend to any player which has a good chance getting drafted or play in the NFL that should take a risk to play in a meaningless bowl game; especially after getting shafted by ESPN and the committee? Why would ESPN allow that to happen? More money for ESPN? Playing the ratings hand to decide who plays for a title? This makes me sick. I am done with watching ESPN. I am blocking all ESPN channels from all of my TVs..Version: 6.94.0

Wish i had more hands. At least 4 thumbs downIf you love ads and miss regular cable commercials this is the app for you. ESPN is the world wide leader in sports no question so i find myself using the app out of habit but not by choice. I would delete but i pay ESPN+ for soccer matches. Most apps start free, then they up sell you by telling you hey pay and we get rid of or minimize ads. Not ESPN. You got ads, commercials, and content trying to run at the same time causing the app to, in simple terms, not work. Sad to say but i think the only thing that really works flawlessly in this app is the running of the ads however they can only seem to figure out how to run THE SAME ad over and over again. At least cable tv switches up the commercials and u might run into something you might actually want. Espn runs the same ad before anything and everything you click there is no escaping it. I’d go as far as to say the ads work better than most of the videos they post of the actual content you are looking for. Tap in for a highlight you will get a flawlessly run ad followed by a barely functional video of the content you want. And if u miss that video and try to replay guess what, ANOTHER AD, the same ad, the same exact one u just watched. Insanity. I doubt anyone at ESPN cares they are suffering from success at the highest level. However when a formidable opponent comes along they will be in big trouble..Version: 6.46.2

How?I honestly have no idea how a company with as much money as this has such an awful app. It’s slow, bordering on unresponsive sometimes. My phone is flaming hot after a few minutes of use on the app, although that could just be my phone and not the app. I get a lot of alerts on from ESPN, but when I click on them, it’s about a 50/50 shot of whether or not I get to see what I clicked. Ads freeze all the time, keeping me from getting to a video I click on. Videos also typically start at about 4 pixels on the screen and get marginally better as the video goes on, no matter if I’m connected to my very good WiFi or my cellular data. The amount of content is also a little subpar. When you look at an app like Bleacher Report that produces an insane amount of well-done and free content on an app that actually works, the paywall of ESPN+ is just silly. Streaming from the app is also nearly impossible for me. But the website is just as bad. The content that I actually get to see is usually pretty good stuff, making it a two star rating instead of a one star. Considering the money ESPN and Disney have, they should be embarrassed about the quality of their app and their website..Version: 6.20.1
